Hello friends,

first let me say thanks to you for all your positive feedback about the python.

In the meantime I rode more than 1000km with the bike and I am v e r y satisfied with it
- in fact it is really big fun.

For those who are interested I have 3 news:

- some new fotos have been added to the hompage
- for homebuilders I want to establish a small mailinglist
- a material list and a building plan will be added soon for your free use

"bent but not broken"

regards to all,

Juergen.

Hello Chas,

thanks - I had the impression that my thread was deleted...

The python is a radical design of a center steered lowracer. Steering is by feet and therefore there
are no handlebars. One can learn the steering principle within 2 weeks.

The python is designed for easy homebuilding, low weight, low cost and high velocity.

Regards, Juergen.

Hi Juergen.

I'm really looking forward to seeing the building plans - I just _have_ to build one of those. Looks
like I could have the most fun since I rode with a friend when I was 14 years old on a long john
(delivery bike : http://www.dcf.dk/cyklist/cyk20301/images/0301-08a.jpg). One sitting backwards on
the platform, pedalling (backwards) (hey, my first recumbent experience! So that's where it came
from!), the other relaxing and steering. Or when I took out the unicycle for a 25km "race".

Thank you for sharing! Torben

Someone revived it. Not sure I care much about the new saddle or seating position though. You are
not going to set any speed records with 4 crates of beer on it anyway. (Think thats the most I rode
with as a delivery boy many moons ago)

Someone in the building has one of the old ones. If I ever bought a wedgie again, this would
probably be it. Massively useful if you don't have a car.

Pat Field had a Long John about ten years ago, on which he had a bike carrier fork mount thingy
installed. He once used it to bring his Kingcycle to a race meeting, and a good thing too, seeing as
how I rammed him from behind at 30 mph and destroyed his rear wheel...

Hi Torben,

as soon as the weather gets bad here, I will proceed with the material list and the building plans.
At this beautiful springtime weather I prefer cycling (python of course ;-) instead of sitting at
the computer.

If you really want to build the python then you can join a mailing list, that I want to establish
especially for home builders.

Regards,

Juergen.

No speed records when the beer has been drunk either, just an slo-mo imitation of the Varna fall.

They forgot to improve the steering linkage while they where at it - same **** as in the '70es.
